    Too a great extent we can blame Butnut and Mint, and perhaps Suse. They intentionally entice Windows users with the promise of a system that will be just like Windows, but free. In other words, "you will not need to learn anything." When some of those people move to other systems, they expect to plug-and-play. "Read documentation? Are you stupid or insane? That is poor customer service!" Many of the ex-Windows users you refer to are too stupid to understand that possessing a free product does not make them customers.

    What bugs me most is that most of them are not actually ex-Windows users. They want to dual-boot a Linux system with their beloved Windows. And then there are the idiots who want to switch to Linux and install Wine so they can continue using the Windows software they know and love. Defeats the purpose of switching to a different operating system, does it not?

    Yeah, some people just aren't willing to adapt. I'm lucky, I only had about 2 years of using Windows before I discovered Linux - not enough time to get brainwashed into doing everything the Windows way.

    Chromebook Acer C710-2457

    Still testing AntiX 14.

    Procrastinating this change over also. Not many kernels in the wild that support these touchpads out of the box yet and only a few choices on what to run and hit and miss maybe since most
    out of the box installs are C720 specific.

    I be afeared I guess.

    My druthers is to run a frugal install with a persistence sd card
    without using a usb external mouse in the bag when I boot outside of ChromiumOS.

    Then dd to another backup card so if I break it. Just re-clone from the backup card.
    I guess I'll stay patient, since that sounds better than being scared.

    Well, on the backburner for the time being as AntiX 14 development takes priority at the present for a while.

    Working with releases MX-14 and tweaking AntiX 14 is
    time consuming. Lots of one at a time stuff to go through like

    Code:
    -> Command:
        cp ./usr/share/desktop-defaults /usr/share/desktop-defaults
        chown root:root /usr/share/desktop-defaults -r
        
    ./usr/share/applications/antix
    ./usr/share/applications/antix/live-usb.desktop
    ./usr/share/applications/antix/antix-snapshot.desktop
    ./usr/share/applications/antix/antixsources.desktop
    ./usr/share/applications/antix/antiXCC.desktop
    -> Modified:
        Modified to be included in the antiX menu under applications
        These are just some random ones I picked to show the actual antiX submenu and how to make it work.
    -> Command:
        cp ./usr/share/applications/antix /usr/share/applications/antix
        chown root:root /usr/share/applications/antix -r
    and that is just a short part of what I have going on.

    Context is everything.

    'Forward, the Light Brigade!'
    Was there a man dismay'd ?
    Not tho' the soldier knew
    Some one had blunder'd:
    Theirs not to make reply,
    Theirs not to reason why,
    Theirs but to do & die,
    Into the valley of Death
    Rode the six hundred.


    The Charge Of The Light Brigade

    I copied a quote from one guys signature not too long ago: "A nation is a group of persons united by the common error of their ancestry and a common dislike of their neighbors." -Karl W. Deutsch

    But that wont say much for the planet ether at least for some time. . . . . . .

    "Ours is not to reason why. Ours is but to do and die"
    —Alfred Lord Tennyson

    Had that last one in the same text file but now doesn't make much sense to me.
    Why wouldn't we reason if given one or the opportunity to take it?

    "You value personal freedom too much. Each individual is but a kog in the human machinery. Individuals have very little value on their own."
    This is a collectivist and very sinister and dangerous way of thinking that has no respect for human rights.
    How can any sovereign human think like this?
    America was founded on individual rights. There are no collective or group rights in the constitution or bill of rights of the United States. They are all individual rights.
    There is no group anyway! You can not know a group. You can not have a relationship with a group. You can not touch a group. You can only know and touch and have relationships with individuals.
    Just consider the idea of a forest. What is a forest anyway? Humans see a large number of trees in a given area and call it a forest, but in the natural world, there is no forest, there are only trees. The concept of a forest, like a group, is merely an abstraction of the human mind.
    The collectivist believes that the individual can be sacrificed for the good of the group.
    The individualist believes that all life is sacred.

    The individual is more important than the group!!!

    Broadcom Wireless

    Thanks for the advice!

    I've a friend whose laptop's Broadcom adapter is not on the list. Do you suppose there's any chance that drivers for the left-out adapters will be developed?

    I also have a problematic Broadcom adapter, and mine is in green on the list. I tried what you suggested before I realized that, apparently due to my Broadcom adapter not being recognized, I can't access the internet with that system. It sounds, from what you're saying, as if some people can access the internet even without a recognized adapter. Is that right? How confusing!
